Please note that an application fee only extends an initial license to the next renewal date. Initial licenses do vary in duration. It is the responsibility of all licensees to renew their license before expiration. Failure to renew shall result in automatic forfeiture or suspension of the license by statute. Licenses which have forfeited are not automatically entitled to renew.

Why do I have to pay for verifications?

All verifications, regardless of format (electronic or printed with the Board seal), come straight from the Board and are therefore primary source verifications. Verification of licensure (especially state board to state board) is a necessary official function of the regulatory Board. The rates charged are a source of revenue to offset the expense of constant updating and administration. By statute, the board expenses must not exceed revenues.
